the start. >> what about the fact that the fbi was being sent to the site, even though the area has been compromised? >> the f.b.i. does a great job. the crime scene has been totally compromised. it's been 2 1/2 weeks and the fbi hasn't been able to get there. this whole idea of relying on the fbi goes back to a pre-9/11 mentality when we're treating them as crimes rather than acts of terrorism. the fbi can do all it can do, but we don't need the fbi to tell us whether this was a terrorist attack. the fbi could be helpful in tracking some of those involved, but to rely on the fbi this way, again, is going back to a pre-9/11 mind-set. we saw what that did on 9/11. >> sure did. so are you saying that the president and his team simply don't want the public to know the truth, that on 9/11, our security was tight enough, there may be al-qaeda linked to the attack, and we didn't scandal that's continuing to grow. the problem now spreads statewide. senior correspondent eric shawn is here with the latest on the investigation. eric? >> now there's suspected problems with registration forms in 10
rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee and former fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to provide leadership throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the brink of nuclear capabilities in just six months. he use ad metaphor to describe the new emergency and claims that iran is developing nuclear power for peaceful purposes. listen to this. >> denies the holocaust, promises to wipe
, we are investigating this, closely. the f.b.i. has the lead in the investigation. the information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned premeditated attack. what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. people were gathered outside the embassy and it grew violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons which unfortunately, are quite common in post revolutionary libya. that, then, spun out-of-control attack. we will wait for the results of the investigation. we do not want to jump to conclusions before that. it is important for the american people to know our best current assessment. >>chris: the last question, terror cells in benghazi carried out five attacks since april including one at the same consulate, a bombing at this same consulate, in june. should u.s. security have been tighter at that consulate given the history of terror activity in benghazi? >>guest: obviously we did have a strong security p

been asking over and over is the f.b.i. going there? why haven't they arrived yet? is it because it's unsafe? what is the other reason if you are the administration you want the f.b.i. investigating this? >> kimberly: this is their dog and pony show. instead of handling this through the military division they will handle it as a law enforcement problem. send the f.b.i. there. that means if they get anybody they want to question and integait, they will go, here is a happy meal. we'll bring you back and try you here. the wrong way to approach this situation. >> dana: it has happened before. at fort hood. >> kimberly: it has happened before. we've seen the epeck fail by the administration and holder of department of injustice. they don't know how to manage this. they are lacking. they are not respected in the middle east. now seeing weakened position internationally. if you look in the the violence erupting in different spots if this was president bush in the past administration, calls for him to be thrown out of office. >> dana: absolutely. we spent time thinking about this. what woul
of there the next day. we were told by susan rice the fbi's investigating. the fbi has never gone in to banghazi. this is 15, 16 days later. that tells you banghazi is an utterly unsafe city. you know, it's al-qaedaville, if you will, if the fbi can't go into the consulate and investigate. barack obama is saying we've won the war against al-qaeda, we're winning the war, they're in retreat, all the rest of it. if al-qaeda is that strong in banghazi, the libyan government can't deal with this thing, what did we liberate there? al-qaeda is in the arabian peninsula, it's in anbar province, it's in libya, it's in pakistan. the main one, and hillary clinton just referred to it today, take a look at northern mali. it's the size of france. the affiliate of al-qaeda has taken over the place entirely. she seemed to suggest the attack might have originated there. right next door an american general has been in there. they're talking about a 3,000-man army to invade that area. what's at stake is obama's entire middle east policy and all this -- you know, queue sama is dead and year on a roll. >> sean: if th
the investigation the fbi is there now, one of the greatest fears is where the weapons that came from that killed these folks. >> thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> the time now patti ann what's coming up. >> there is one way heather to avoid the possible lines for the iphone 5. can you say i rob? private eyes may be watching you but one state is putting up security cameras to watch other cameras. really? >> welcome back to fox and friends first. i am heather childers. >> i am patti ann browne. it is 30 minutes after the hour. cairo egypt violent anti-american protests are now in their 4th day and they are spreading across the milled east. >> we have learned four people now raised for the disturbing attacks in libya that killed four americans including u.s. ambassador christopher stevens. gregg palkot is live for us in london with the latest. >> heather and patti ann we have been seeing violence protests. this is the day of holy prayer after they go to the mosques. we are girding for trouble through out the day. first we are looking at cairo. showing some skirmishing some clashes betw
. they have the fbi on the ground. two of the militias have been disbanded already. tremendous progress is being made. give them time to figure it out and do what is right. i think that is the respectful thing to do here. megyn: mark, the administration was very quick to come out and say mitt romney spoke too soon on this, and campaign spokesperson for obama came out and said he shoots first and aims later which was picking up on his boss's remarks when. it comes to this issue what happened in libya, is it fair, is it not a fair question to ask whether that is what this administration did in sending susan rice out there to tell all of this is about a video when they had other information? kirsten powers was on our show yesterday saying this was either gross incompetence or this was a deliberate attempt to mislead. >> she is absolutely right. look, we now know that within 24 hours they knew that it was a, that it was a terrorist attack. al qaeda was involved and five days later susan rice went on national television on five sunday shows and said it had to do with a protest on the ground
that are on the ground in libya. there is one u.s. navy destroyer off of the coast and another coming there, too and f.b.i. agents and as well a stepped up drone surveillance. we are talking about a terror manhunt in libya. in addition to the motivator of that film made in the u.s., it could be a complex organization to take out u.s. officials with an al-qaida link. we are looking at the video we have seen coming from the al-qaida number one who is citing that the al-qaida number two was killed by the u.s. and called on action from the u.s.. a complex and fluid situation, back to you. >> gretchen: thank you. >> brian: how does the united states respond? former director of national intelience who worked in the worst situation . ambassador, welcome. what is our best next step first of course in libya? >> let mow say that chris stevens, we lost an exemptary diplomat. he was the kind of example of expeditionary diplomacy that characterized our hot spots . we will mourn his loss and miss him greatly. as far as the next step, we have to wait this situation out a bit and at least get past the friday prayers tomo
hoffa. one of the persistent questions. why is this shed and driveway? >> the f.b.i. has this case. of course, they have been searching for years for jimmy hoffa's body. it came up where somebody complained they saw or know of a body that was buried at that location. he gave a couple of names that were tied in with jimmy hoffa at the time when he disappeared. that was the reason for the search. either they had to search for a body or jimmy hoffa's body. that is the reason for this. >> heather: this location it's about 30 miles west of where he was last seen. you mentioned those names. they are associated with the house itself? >> i think they are. one of them -- i'm not sure if they are relatives or not. the person who made that allegation the f.b.i., i think those names were connected in some way. one of those names are probably the prime suspect of disappearance of jimmy hoffa. >> heather: what are investigators looking for in these soil samples. what do they hope to find? >> anything they can find. any kind of bone, body, dna anything to prove there is a body there. does the f.b
with the latest on the fbi investigation there. gregg? >> reporter: thanks for taking me. american officials here on the ground tell me that they are pleased are -- pleased with the libyan government. the militias have been tried to trouble here and possibly tie to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. all weekend, we have been watching the public anger and the violence out of benghazi, seeing the compound ransacked and protesters and militia members being killed. in response, the government says that by tuesday, the armed gangs here have to cooperate. they have to give up their weapons and leave their bases. some are skeptical that this will happen. still. the islamist group ansar al-sharia has left two cities. they are suspected of direct involvement. now to the investigation. the developments this week enappear to be positive, simply put, it's a bit of quick, rough justice for the deaths of stevens and the three other americans, and conversations today for the officials, libyan officials, both here and in benghazi, it appears their investigation into the killings i
off the coast of libya, both armed with missiles and the f.b.i. has sent a team to libya to investigate who is responsible for the attack. the president just vowed at the ceremony to hunt down whoever might be responsible. >>trace: what more can you tell us about the closure of benghazi airport? >>reporter: according to libyan officials, they closed the airport for a short time this morning after there was anti-aircraft fire in the area showing just how lawless and antarctic the area is, targeting several drones that were being flown up above. this is the only confirmation we have that u.s. drones are flying up above the benghazi area. certainly, it would make sense, because the f.b.i. team is going to be on the ground, investigating. again, this is coming from libyan officials. the pentagon, of course, is not commenting. >>trace: thank you, jennifer griffin were the teacher strike that has kept hundreds of thousands of kids out of chicago in chicago could soon come to a close. the breaking news on a tentative deal to get class back in session. who caved? who won? that is
. remember the terror attack is not a terror attack. they sent f.b.i. investigators and they think it was reaction as you know as we are talking today to that film on youtube. >> gretchen: benjamin netanyahu is talking about sunday football . do we have the clipp now? this is in steve's video bank. >> steve: yes. >> brian: realize was two on one. and i was numerically challenged. mr. 1: i was the ref there. >> brian: that was the launchh and we ran the drills. and i predicted success for the league. >> steve: i forget what the occasion was when they were here. to launch or a promotional event. >> brian: i happening the promotional event took place because we launched the league. i predicted success and one day big are than nfl. >> gretchen: does the meaning why they were here. >> steve: historical. >> brian: more jobs for people. putting people back to work. >> steve: stimulus. >> gretchen: coming up on the show, a little boy could lose his side from a di detergent pods. >> steve: 33 soldiers murdered by green on blue attacks this year alone . so how has the pentagon responded? by

no longer comment on it because the fbi's conducting an investigation, and, therefore, if you have questions, bring them to the department of justice, the same department of justice you used to run. but they said the d. of justice isn't going the talk to you either. then we started to get leaks about who was really behind this, and it wasn't spontaneous, and this was a planned terror attack, and there was some heads up about it, and now they come out and say, okay, it was a terror act. does that shift it? no longer doj, now this is a military thing that the pentagon should be talking to us about? >> correct. correct. and, um, it was -- it's obvious that, it was always obvious that it was a terrorist attack. the fact is that the ambassador's presence in, um -- was supposed to be confidential, the fact is that they knew -- megyn: got to cut you off, general, because we're going up against a hard break. thank you so much. be right back. megyn: well, an unemployment report released this morning suggests things are not getting better on the jobs front. economists expected 375,000 new jobless clai

the united states or u.s. policy. >> ooses an fbi agent, i get to look at all of that. i come to a different conclusion. they are only moderately confident that it was a spontaneous event because there are huge gaps in what we know. >> shannon: it was all about u.s. foreign policy on fox news sunday. i sat down with chris wallace for more on his interviews with dr. susan rice and the house intelligence chair, mike rogers. chris, it is all about what happened in foreign pm's this week. you had the ambassador to the u.n., dr. susan rice, to talk about the administration's position on what may have sparked what we saw play out in the middle-east. >> it is intk because jay carney, the white house spokesman said it on friday and ambassador rice backed it up, reinforced it, doubled down on sunday. they say that all of this unrest across the middle-east is all about that video that came out, this obscure video that insults the prophet muhammad, they say it has nothing to do with anti-american feelings and u.s. policies. there are an awful lot of people who question that, but that's the position of
confirmed the fbi has a team on the ground in libya to identify suspects, gather evidence and assess whether a prosecution is possible. as fox news was first to report the targeted killing of ambassador coordinated and may be linked to a group called lifg or the libyan fighting islamic group. it was banned by the former dictator muammar qaddafi because of its support for al qaeda. the head of the house intelligence committee is one of few members of congress fully briefed on the attacks and the investigation. >> even though we can't say for sure this was an al qaeda event yet it certainly fits the profile, it fits the signature, the precision, the way that they carried out this particular attack, certainly would make it likely that it is an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> reporter: this morning the libyan foreign ministry saying that they believe a group called ansar al sharia was involved. they support the extremist goal of imposing strict sharia law in that country. jenna: ongoinging investigation as we learn more about libya. what about cairo? what are we learning about the investiga
the f.b.i. over who had to cool their heels for days before they could even get in there, and i don't know if they are in benghazi yet. but, you know, i heard yesterday about this journal that was found by -- of the ambassador, three days after the attack by a journalist walking through the compound. this is just lew ludicrous. on the face of it the way they are handling this is so incompetent, and treating it again like it's a "law & order" issue, they've sent the f.b.i. to investigate, like when they find out what is wrong are they going to try to arrest somebody in libya? bill: we'll be in touch with your office and find out what you find out. thank you for your time. i want to bring in senior brooks, a senior fellow for national security affairs. peter what is going on here. >> i have the same concerns that the chairman has, he just expressed, and he's probably better informed than i am. we see all of these loose treads on this narrative coming out of the white house. my sense at this point because of those new pieces of information that don't all fit together that they are doin
, i ashiewf you that the intelligence commun theofnited states of america there are fbi agents and intelligence analysts already in libya investigating and we will find the culprits of the death of our ambassador. >> bill: they have to be killed. we have to get them not the libyans, would veto get them. >> look, look. i think that american interests are american interests. we should protect our interest. it is what we are doing all over the world. in this war on terrorism. >> bill: okay, now, should the president have been a little bit stronger about the egyptian situation because we all know and you better than most because you are in the intel committee, all right, that the egyptian government could have stopped this cold and chose not to so, therefore, american lives are put in danger and american property destroyed. should the president have come out and said that better not happen again and we're not going to tolerate it in a much stronger way than he did? >> you know, diplomacy really tough. and ambassador stevens gave his life in the name of diplomacy there are things, b
the explanatory memorandum, it was uncovered in virginia in an fbi raid in 1991. it is very clear what their intent and purpose is and when you read their charter, this is a group that is very closely tied to terrorism and all of these subsidiary groups really have the muslim brotherhood as the grandfather organization, establish in the 1920s. >> sean: it seeps to me, congressman, we are at a tipping point. anti-american sentiment. anti-american violence is growing. we have a president -- i don't know -- i don't think appeasement is the right word as much as he is weak. and the people in the middle-east, all they know is strength. and that strength needs to be backed up by a commitment to follow might. en you recognize ronald reagan's three critical word it's peace through strength. if you recall in the reagan administration, when he uncovered that libya was behind the germany disco attack that killed some american soldiers, he went after momar cadoffy and shut him down-- >>> it seems like they are mocking us, daring the united states to act. what's president obama -- does the american
